and living on the edge, quite literally. the daredevil cyclist risking life and limb to take on the famed red rock cliffs of sedona, arizona. this morning he tells "gma" how he pulled off his amazing white-knuckle ride. that's what it is. hey, good morning, everybody. a huge day for sports fans. this is selection sunday. >> i have to admit, i geek out today. it's one of my favorite days of the year. later today, we'll learn the teams competing in march madness. and coming up, we're going to get expert advice on how the fill out bracket for the office pool. >> in your defense, you do geek out most days. >> i do. >> this is just a special geek out. first, the top story. the major flooding from the gulf coast to the great lakes. causing people to leave behind their homes and businesses. >> rivers jumping their banks. there are road closures,
8:02 am
evacuations. one man swept away. rob is tracking it all. for us this morning. hi, rob. >> hi, paula. two weeks ago, nearly two feet of snow across the ohio river valley. this week, two to four inches of rainfall. that combination, not good for some. water levels rising on the ohio to nearly six feet above flood stage. this boat barely getting under this bridge. for many on the ohio river valley, remnants of winter rearing its ugly head, melting snow and ice causing chaos. this photo captioned melting snow plus spring showers equals a very angry ohio river. describing the dire situation some residents face. in louisville kentucky rescue teams december rattly semplging the ohio river for man walking on foot, swept away by the rushing river. watch as they comb through the murky flood waters. meanwhile, main streets in the area shutting town. cincinnati is prepping for the worst. >> nerve racking. stressful. >> reporter: the red cross setting up a local shelter
8:03 am
overnight for residents living in threatened areas. the river expected to crest later this morning. likely to be the highest level since 1997. all these little red areas, those are other area rivers some tributaries, feeding into the ohio and mississippi. they're in flood stage. many will remain there for the next maybe even day or so. the good news is, we don't have a whole lot of moisture to add on to that in the next 48 hours. the jet stream remains to the north. we'll see temperatures moderate a little bit. we've had tremendous snow pack. that's adding to the problem. meanwhile out west record high temperatures in los angeles yesterday. we'll see more records today. we'll talk about that heat laettner the broadcast. >> we'll continue to cover the flooding straight through "world news tonight." now, another developing story, ten americans who may have been exposed to ebola in africa are flying to the u.s. right now to be monitored. these people are free of
8:04 am
symptoms, we should say. they were possibly exposed to another american health care worker who did test positive for ebola and is now being treated at this hospital in maryland. let's turn to dr. richard besser. as you might imagine, a lot of people hear there's a plane filled with people who may have been infected with ebola and they're coming to our country. they get a little bit worried. should we be worried? >> i don't think so. i think this is the right thing to do for a number of reasons. these are americans who have gone to west africa to try to knock this epidemic out. that's what's going to make us safest here in the long run. while some of them may have been exposed, no one is sick. but with ebola, you can't transmit this disease until you have symptoms, severe symptoms. they'll be put under quarantine. they'll check their temperatures twice a day. if they have the slightest fever, they'll be put in isolation. >> they're doing heroic and dangerous work overseas. but speaking of overseas you have been there on the front lines of the ebola epidemic.
8:05 am
do you have any hope that this thing can be snuffed out? >> i do. i'm seeing some very positive signs. so like so liberia, where we've done a lot of reporting, the u.s. has had the biggest efforts. no patients currently being treated. no new cases in two weeks. if there's no cases for the next four weeks, they declare it totally ebola-free. sierra leone and guinea are seeing 100 cases a week between the two of them. if the international effort continues, they may be able to knock it out by early summer at the latest. we have to continue the effort. and the americans are part of that. it will allow us to sleep better here. >> it's a good example of international cooperation. dr. besser, thank you. now a devastating crash caught on camera. a train barreling down the tracks. and suddenly a car tries to cross with deadly results. this is the latest in a string of similar accidents across the country. gloria riviera is in our washington bureau with more.
8:06 am
gloria? >> reporter: good morning. that video so hard to watch. overnight, another vehicle struck by a train with multiple fatalities. we have heard far too many stories like this one lately. one witness saying this car was pulverized. shocking video of a train crash in louisville, kentucky. just the latest in a string of deadly train collisions in the past few weeks. the accident occurred just after 4:00 p.m. on saturday when a car plowed through the intersection. signals at the crossing went off. but there was no gate to stop the driver. >> those were flashing lights there at the scene. obviously when there is a guard, there may be more of warning. but they're distracted. >> reporter: four people were in the white toyota camry at the time, which was pushed half a mile down the tracks. >> we have four patients. be advised, they're all critical. >> reporter: two were pronounced dead at the scene. two were taken to university hospital. the train did not derail. no personnel on the train were injured. this is the fourth train
8:07 am
collision in recent weeks, where fully functioning train crossing signals failed to keep drivers off the track. in february a new york train crash left 6 people dead and 12 injured. another commuter train crash last month in california was deadly. and the amtrak derailment in halifax county north carolina, just last week that injured more than passengers. 50 passengers. >> oh, oh. >> reporter: the louisville metro police are investigating. there is no connection you saw between the men you saw filming the video and the incident. dan? paula? >> this just keeps happening. thank you, gloria. now to a fresh alleged atrocity with isis. kurdish forces on the ground in iraq say isis fighters used chemical weapons against them, specifically chlorine gas. let's bring in george stephanopoulos. is news like this likely to help president obama's uphill battle
8:08 am
to force congress to give him approval to continue the fight against yis wrist? isis. >> maybe on the margins. but it's a tough fight for the president. that authorization request is getting cause in a vise between democrats on the left who want to make sure that the authorization actually limits the president's ability to put troops on the ground. and the republicans, who want no limits at all and want to authorize the use of more ground troops. it's a very uphill fight for the president. it's also getting caught up now in this whole controversy over the iran nuclear negotiations. secretary kerry will be in switzerland again today trying to wrap up the negotiations. before the end of the month. but as you know there's a real backlash now against congress who sent a letter -- 47 republicans september a letter directly to the iranians suggesting any kind of agreement can be undone. everything is getting caught up in that debate. i don't expect anything to happen on the use of force resolution for several weeks,
8:09 am
maybe even months. >> we see in the latter half of the latter term of a two-term president that foreign affairs takes precedent. here we are again. >> it's real crunch time on the nuclear negotiations. >> thank you, george. a reminder, george will be hosting "this week" talking about the latest in the hillary clinton e-mail situation. and much more. if you have questions, you can tweet him @gstephanopoulos. >> thank you, george and dan. we're so happy to have ryan smith back in for ron. >> good morning, paula, dan, good morning to you. we begin with terrifying moments aboard two separate flights. both jetliners with landing gear problems. passengers on one flight told to put their heads down and brace themselves. tai hernandez has more. >> brace, brace! >> reporter: two plane scares in the sky. both make emergency landings. >> brace, brace! >> reporter: both have problems with landing gear. one was go-jet flight 3645, a
8:10 am

[ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: for "good morning america," tai hernandez, abc news, new york. >> tai, thank you. now a push this morning to get the mayor of ferguson out of office. overnight, protesters took to the streets for mostly peaceful protests. meantime, several residents have
8:11 am
filed an affidavit seeking to recall major james knowles. six city employees have been fired or quit since the scathing justice department report found widespread racial bias in the ferguson police department. knowles has said he has no plans to step down. a wild crime spree in orlando, florida. orange county police say it all started with a car jacking early saturday. the suspects used the car to go on a random shooting rampage. a teen ager and his grandmother were shot in their car, suffering minor injuries. when deputies spotted the men, the suspects fired at them. none of the officers were injured. and take a look at this. an air show high above takes a horrifying turn. two planes clip each other in
8:12 am
midair, bursting into flames. one of the planes crashing to the ground. one hitting a nearby village. both pilots ejected safely. thank goodness. they suffered minor injuries. finally, a true bird's eye view. take a look. this eagle sets a new world record, soaring off the tallest building in the world in dubai in the highest recorded bird flight ever. he's the world's greatest tour guide. take a look over here, nothing to see. let's move on. he had the camera strapped on to him. shows the stunning view of the city. what's more incredible than that, that landing. how about that? stuck it perfectly. this unbelievable precise landing on the arm of his handler. all of this a stunt to bring awareness to endangered birds. but that's why they call it the eagle has landed. >> i wondered how we got those spectacular views. because of that camera. it wasn't a drone for once. >> not a drone. >> someone had to bring him to the top of the building and push him. >> and he flies. >> nature takes hold. >> and fear.
8:13 am
we want to show you incredible new video this morning. this is a car racing more than 250 miles and hour and then wow, siddenly snapping in two. going airborne. the driver somehow walked away from this. mara schiavocampo is all over this story. mara, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. really unbelievable video. that driver says it felt like being on a roller coaster while the car was in the air. and he's grateful that all of the safety features worked in an accident that can only be described as jaw-drobpping. overnight, a drag racing superstar miraculously survives a crash after his rocket fuel-propel ed fuel-propelled car snaps in half at 262 miles per hour.
8:14 am
sending the driver flipping down the track at a national hot rod association race in florida. watch at larry dixon is launched over 20 feet into the air. >> whoa! hold on! >> reporter: smashing into the concrete wall. tumbling down the raceway, to the horror of onlookers. emergency crews rushed to the scene, expecting the worst. but dixon, incredibly, no worse for wear. waving to the crowd as he walked away from the mangled wreckage. his spirits high despite his brush with death. >> the best i can tell is that the front half broke. i mean, captain obvious. gosh, it was up in the air for a long time. >> reporter: this scene, all too familiar for the champion driver, who survived a similar accident on a memphis track in 2000. his car capable of going from 0 to 100 in a second catapulting off the ground -- >> my goodness gracious! >> reporter: -- while competing in one of the fastest races in the world. leaving dixon seriously injured. >> 15 years ago, i got a helicopter ride to the hospital with a broken leg.
8:15 am
>> reporter: crediting updated safety features, dixon grateful he escaped this crash unharmed. >> my back is a little sore. my knee got banged around a little bit. but -- i'm here. walking. got out of the car. at least i'm in one piece. >> reporter: amazing. we still don't know what caused that accident. dixon doesn't have a backup car. he says other teams have offered to let him use their backup car if he decides to finish eliminations today. he was one of the first drivers to wear a helmet restraint system for safety, before it was mandated. and those safety features really helped him this time. >> they did. i'm surprised he's willing to get back into any car at this point. >> this is the second time this has happened to him. >> it's a testament to the safety parameters. and technology that he has the option to get back in the car. >> a lot of it is mandated because people like him started using them. >> mara, thank you so much. this is no ordinary sunday. it's selection sunday as dan mentioned, i'm geeking out. it marks the beginning of march madness, when millions of us fill out brackets attempting to
